That is sounding cool, you know what this might actually cool pretty well...Are you going to have another rad laying in the pool on the bottom also?

I'm not sure yet.. My goal is to get the one that has the fog going through it to be super effecent. I plan on using 6" base pipe so it might have room for one if I decide to include it.

I think between the air and the fog it sould be just the right combo to get the most out of it. So i would think the one in the water might actually be a tad warmer. The diffrence might be alot or it might be un-measurable, but I'll find out when the fogger finally gets here.. hopfully soon..

I used to build stuff out of acrylic for aquariums(sumps, skimmers, tanks, filters, etc.....) We built tons of stuff....anyway, DONT use silicone on acrylic. yes it will glue them together, but wont hold under pressure. You want to use "Weld-on" acrylic solvent as mentioned above. You need a needle bottle to apply it. Working with aqrylic is very easy if you havent done it before. For your application weld-on #3 would work just fine. Its fast acting and creates a tight weld.

Yes but the design has changed so its mostly going to be PVC now. I might deside to create a box in the tower and use normal radiators instead of the Alpha cool passive rad tubes. I think normal rads are more effecent than those alpha cool ones no that i think about it, for a number of resons.

So right now it can go 2 ways. All PVC (which I have worked with in the past)

or

PVC and rad box made out of some other type of plastic. what ever plastic works best with pvc prolly.. (unless I can find PVC sheets to work with)

Hey Dig, Check out that link I gave you again...An Aussie has is building a wild bong on there..He has it hooked up to a water source and is using a toilet tank float to regulate the water intake...It's very cool....

lol thats interesting! I couldn't do that though because of the location of my computers but the idea is very nice. I like how hes building it but I don't know how hes going to cool the liquid in his computer with it. Unless hes using the water inside of the cooler strait into his block on his rig?

If so thats not what I want to do. I'm hoping to keep both bodys of water separate because I can worry about gunk only in the cooler and not the precious loop. It just kinda makes the situation a little more controllable.

I'm hoping using fog instead of these shower systems these guys have will cool better and cycle less water and keep noise down to a minimum. But I'm thinking worst case I can modify what I build to use mist nosils. ya know

I'm only going to build it if theres a 80% chance it will work other wise I will build a mist version that I'm already 90% that will work. Its just a matter of which will work better.

I think that was just the base wasn't it? I really didn't read it all........I think you might be on to something with the mist.....I see where your going to use regular rads, that should work well...EDIT: May-be you could use something like that with a external gravity fed holding tank...

yeah I think thats just the base.. I can tell he likes that one disign too because it looks just like the other guys. I'll check on it to see how it turns out.

External gravity fed holding tank? I'm lost, how does that work?

I was just thinking you could add another PVC section next to your main one, with a nipple in the bottom cap and a small vent hole in your top cap.You would have to have it several inches above the bottom of the other one..Gravity would let the water flow to the lower container..Then you could add a plumbing float to regulate it, like the Aussie did..
You might not have to top off so often....Just a stray thought....

ohh yes yes, a float valve. I was thinking about that as a after though when I got the main part working. Then I could measure how much water is lost and see if that’s necessary. I plan on using 6" pvc for the base no matter the design because it will hold a tone of water. After I see how far that gets me I might have to make exactly what your talking about. Good idea so kudo+ lol.
